Young and cool yeah I got it all
Flawless features and the gift to enthrall
My confidence magnetizes all who are near
And my self-assurance blesses me with no fear
What I got? Well I got everything
A car of my own and a crown like a king
My opinion matters on whatever I say
My scent arouses while repelling decay

I can’t explain what I’m here for, or how I even came to be
But I don’t need to excuse myself, I live in perpetuity
It’s hard being indestructible, people expect me to protect them
Well I’m far from being predictable, as I’m happy to condemn them

My assurance can be seen as arrogance
And my candid demeanor aggressive
My need for money is my comeuppance
Though I don’t mean to be possessive
It’s just the human condition
The need to better ourselves
Anyone in the same position
Would do anything to improve themselves

It isn’t that I am greedy; it isn’t that I’m insane
We all know that to make it this day, we need to endure some pain
As long as I’ve got my youth and the power to prevail
Nobody’s going to stop me, with my strong will I’ll never fail

Well that was me 20 years ago
You could smell the sweat and testosterone flow
I could talk the talk and play the game
I would walk over others without any shame
But times have changed, not gone my way
My dreams have aged and my wrinkles say
That I never became the success that I’d planned
And now as my hourglass runs out of sand

I still don’t know why I’m here, it frustrates me to think
Of how I never made it so I sit around and drink
And now I dread the future just as much as I dread the past
I swam in a pool of promise that seemed to dry up on me fast

I can’t forgive myself because I had it all
Still should’ve used my brain to softly break my fall
But my own self importance, clouded all that I did
My friends turned into vapor, as I spat acid
My car turned to a scooter and my house a cardboard box
I can’t remember when I could last afford to buy socks
I sit and drink and wish, how I would do things time again
But I gave up my chance when I should’ve given up cocaine.

I can’t explain what I’m here for, or how I even came to be
But I don’t need to excuse myself, I live in perpetuity
It’s hard being indestructible, people expect me to protect them
Well I’m far from being predictable, as I’m happy to condemn them

But in the end It was me who was condemned
To live on a curb all alone without a friend
Down this jagged cliff I descend
Into the abyss to my end
